'Week of the Stars'
The Pleasanton Partnerships in Education Foundation (PPIE) is hosting its "Week of the Stars" event from this Saturday through Oct. 24 to generate support for Pleasanton Unified School District students and educators.
The fundraising program includes a "Great Auction" being held online starting this Saturday (Oct. 16) at 9 a.m. There are also opportunities to make general donations to PPIE.
A "Teacher Appreciation" function allows residents to sign up for free and offer comments of praise for their favorite PUSD teacher. The nonprofit will then do a lottery drawing and issue gift cards to selected teachers.
Participating restaurants are also offering 10% off on dine-in or takeout meals during the "Week of the Stars." To learn more about the program, visit ppie.org.

The session, set for 7 p.m. Wednesday (Oct. 20), will focus on ideas shared since the August meeting and initial concept land-use plans in response. Visit dublin.ca.gov.
